What lens did you use for this laser? I noticed you didn't have the rectangular artifact that has been left by some lenses with this diode. Very nice photos.....especially the beam shots. I'd watch the duty cycle in that tiny host, though. People have lost some diodes and the cause is still not known for sure. Excellent review. :yh:

The acrylic lens cuts it down pretty good. The 2elem lens even better. Haven't tried a 3 element lens yet.
